Brown, London named to All-Sun Belt First Team
Graduate senior tight end Keenen Brown and junior linebacker Bryan London II were both named to the All-Sun Belt First Team, announced Thursday morning by the conference.
Brown led the team and was No. 10 in the NCAA among tight ends in receiving yards this season, catching 51 passes for 577 yards and five touchdowns. The Houston native was also rated as the top tight end in the country by Pro Football Focus with a grade of 86.6 and had a catch rate of 76.1 percent.
London also led the team and the Sun Belt in both solo and total tackles, racking up 53 and 109, respectively. It’s the second time in three seasons the Converse native led the league in tackles. London also forced two fumbles this year, tied for third in the conference and had six pass deflections.
In addition to Brown and London, junior linebacker Nikolas Daniels was named to the all-conference third team. Daniels trailed London by just one total tackle, good for second in the Sun Belt, and registered seven tackles for a loss.
Junior offensive lineman Aaron Brewer, senior linebacker Frankie Griffin, and sophomore and junior wide receivers Jeremiah Haydel and Hutch White were all honorable mentions on the All-Sun Belt squad.
